Who is this a$$hat? Another community organizer? Oh yeah that's right you can't have a NAAWP to answer this as that is racist. He should go to a country where he is not "put upon" and take his pals with him.

Barber is no different than Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton etc. they make a living promoting hatred and division. If people truly united they would be out of work and they know that. Obama and the Democrats do the same to maintain the Black vote. Unfortunately the Black population is encouraged to be racist, the very thing that they experienced for so long. If the majority of White people were still racist Obama would not have been elected twice. Now the shoe is on the other foot and instead of enjoying a better world they continue to promote racism. Barber and his ilk will have to answer to a higher power one day just like the racist Whites of earlier times.

I have not seen him eat but I would recommend staying clear of the table and keep small children and animals out of his reach.

The reason why he called them racist is because they are racists. He is talking about a party that purposely changed their strategy to appeal to white racists in order to win national elections. They haven't changed that much in 40 years, except nowadays that strategy causes them to lose national elections.

. The problem is people like you buy into that rhetoric from the mainstream media. The racist propaganda that gets disseminated into the homes across America by NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC is pure nonsense. The 1950s are over and the people of America elected an African American twice. Are Ben Carson and Herman Cain racist? They are Republicans. They're just smart enough to understand how the Blacks are being manipulated by the Dems for votes. Dems actually do less for Blacks than Republicans. Who donates more money to the poor? What churches help the people in Haiti, Africa? Christians and they are mostly Republicans. Wake up and smell the coffee!

No, not all Pubs are racist. But, the GOP did decide 40 years ago to appeal to racists to get their votes. And then they decided to appeal to the pro-life set to get votes too. Your average GOP politician probably isn't racist and might not really even care about pro-life. But he sure does care about winning, so he struggles to hold together what is left of his coalition. The GOP needs every racist vote they can get in order to win elections.

Sounds like they've got your vote.

No, I didn't vote for Obama. Didn't vote for Romney either. Different flavors of liars.

No, I didn't vote for Paul either. He's honest, but his policy ideas are insane.

Democrats have given this nation: slavery, racism, segregation, The Gag Rule, a Civil War. Jim Crow laws, Poll tax, separate but equal, eugenics, interment camps, welfare and class warfare. Check your history on what Republicans did after the Civil War to help blacks and the stone walling they received from Democrats to keep them oppressed ! If it wasn't for republican support, the Civil Rights Act of 1965 would had never passed to be signed into law! Al Gore's dad and Bill Clinton's mentor BOTH voted against the bill! Democrats replaced the chains of slavery with chains of a government check for the loyalty of the black community, so far it has worked!

"Democrats have given", "Republicans did". Note your use of past tense. Keep up with the times. Ask yourself, why did Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond change parties? Was it because of their love of the black race? Well, in Thurmond's case, maybe it was.

Kanye West said it best: "George Bush doesn't care about black people". Because they didn't vote for him, why would he?

People's motivations are pretty simple usually. Blacks don't vote GOP because the GOP doesn't care about them, so the GOP doesn't care about blacks because they don't vote for them.

The GOP has also alienated Latinos, a growing number of whom are citizens and voters. So it's going to get increasingly difficult for the GOP to win. Especially since old white men have a bad habit of getting older and dying.

Robert Byrd was a Klan member, what party did he belong to? Republicans want people to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. Democrats want to GIVE everybody everything and do it with other people's money! Democrats destroyed the black family. They took the father OUT of the equation. Now look at them, no amount of money will correct it. Being responsible for your actions is the only way out of that spiral but Democrats don't want you to be responsible. If you were you would realize THEY(Democrats) are the new slave owners. Stop watching MSNBC for your talking points, they are old and false!
